PHOTOGRAPHY (CLOCKWISE FROM TOP): COURTESY OF MATRIX (3); STEVEN KLEIN; COURTESY OF KEUNE THE LOOK Capitalizing on the current color melt trend, Matrix has released the spring/summer Holographic Color Melt collection showcasing four designs: the Opal Melt, Mermaid Melt, Rose Gold Melt and Mocha Melt. Created by an international team of Matrix artistic directors— Chrystofer Benson, Mila Belova, Danielle Keasling and Dan Csicsai—and the stylists they each mentored—Dennis Rombout, Francis Bouchard, Vitaliy Pimenov and Victoria Yeremchuk—the collection is supported by a comprehensive digital and visual program that includes a 360 Digital Hub, which allows stylists and consumers to experience 360-degree views of individual models, as well as a selection of videos for use on social media, YouTube and local websites. According to Benson, the looks in the collection can be adapted for any salon client. "For commercial adaptation, keep the tones and levels closer together," he says. "For progressive or avant garde looks, explore disconnection, asymmetry and color levels that are further apart."
